(Jack in the Pulpit - 18a) When we took this photo, we did not realize that a female mosquito was on the Jack in the pulpit berry cluster, or we would have taken more photos of her. Even though she is partially out of focus, it looks like she is trying to insert her proboscis into a berry, which, if this is what she is really doing, is counter to all the things we have read about mosquito behavior and feeding.
